It is easy to imagine reggae dancehall items by Nael’C, sung in French, being played in trendy discothèques and on commercial radio stations. Good vibes!
Nael’C (his real name is Anael Clavier) was born in Maceio, Brazil, grew up in French and later settled in Montréal in the late 2000s. From an early age, he liked to write lyrics and also enjoyed singing and composing. He was immersed in many styles of music: gospel, rap, R&B, reggae – anything and everything! He began his career collaborating with big names in music, including Alpha Blondy, Esy Kennenga, Daddy Mory and Lynsha.
Once in Québec, he refined his style and became a reggae-dancehall lyricist, composer and performer. He joined a group that broke up in 2011. He also was initially part of groups including Beres Hammond and Inner Circle in Calgary. In 2011, he recorded a piece titled Douce Lady-Zouk.
In March 2012, Nael’C won a competition held by Sael on a remix of If Loving You is a Crime. His performance will be included on the artist’s next album. On the same path, he took part in the Syli d’Or organized by Nuits d’Afrique, reaching the semi-finals, and he founded a new group that included Marc Nathaniels and Lionel, musicians who were acolytes from several years back. Marc is a drummer specializing in zouk and other African beats, while Lionel leans more toward rock. Nicolas, Geneviève, Mathieu and Jahme also joined in. Each of them brings a special touch, along with passion and talent in accompanying the singer-percussionist.
Nael’C’s songs are colourful and energizing fireworks, straight from Brazil, leaving nobody indifferent. On stage, the vibrations come one after another, carrying audiences toward different dreams.
